The Prince George hospital Auxiliary was established in 1919 and in 2019 we will celebrate our 100th anniversary. The Prince George ‘Ladies Auxiliary’ was established by Mrs. Cowie, the first president. She was a driving force to support the needs of the hospital as they set out to raise money mainly for linens, drapes and other incidentals. The first piece of equipment they funded was an x-ray machine for the grand price of $500.00! In 2017 the Auxiliary to UHNBC funded over $200,000.00 worth of equipment to the hospital.
Here are some events to watch for as we celebrate our Anniversary! Please stay tuned for further updates!
